Join a Guild committee at CBC

Want to get involved in activities of the Guild at CBC? Consider joining one of our national committees. Much of the work happens by conference call; in some cases there are in-person meetings, usually in Toronto. Committee members get paid time off from work to attend joint meetings with management and travel costs for members outside Toronto are covered. **The executive has a new policy for forming committees (http://www.cmg.ca/CBCbranchpoliciesMar11EN.pdf ). If you already sit on one of the committees, you need to apply again if you want to stay on**.

National grievance committee: handles grievances referred to the national level.

Employee assistance program national board: sets policies and budget for national program and helps local committees meet national standards.

Employment equity committee: works with management to develop, implement and review the employment equity plan required under law.

National joint committee: meets regularly with management to deal with workplace issues that are national in scope and works to maintain the relationship between the Guild and management.

Consultative Committee on Staff Benefits: oversees the CBC’s benefit and insurance plans and makes recommendations on the pension plan.

National joint employment planning committee: deals with downsizing, including the layoff and recall procedure.

Health and safety committee: develops and monitors health and safety programs as well as prevention of workplace hazards.

Education and mobilization: a Guild committee to inform members about the union and their rights and campaigns to get them more active in the day-to-day life of their union.
